What are Floating Stairs?

Floating staircases are designed to minimize or hide the supporting structure of the staircase. This gives impression that the stair treads are floating. Floating stairs are popular in open concept spaces. They remove visual obstructions and maximize living space. Viewrail is also considered a prefabricated stair, learn more about the prefabricated stair types

These mono stringer stairs are well-known for their design (what’s the difference between an open riser & a mono stringer?). They can be installed indoors or outdoors, for businesses or homes or remodels. They can be paired with several different types of railing and handrail options — often, they are installed with glass, cable, or rod railing. Many of these options come with components that can be hidden in the posts themselves: to enhance the illusion of floating.

How much is a Floating Staircase?

Mono Stringer Floating Stairs typically cost somewhere between $5,000 and $30,000. This range is so extreme because the factors surrounding floating stairs are highly customizable and there are many finish options. It is possible to find cheaper options, but those options are limited to a single standard use and are a riskier choice. Viewrail Floating Stairs, on the other hand, start at $9,500 and give you a custom-designed, custom-engineered, and hand-crafted staircase that meets code and will last for years.

Floating stairs are purchased in a similar way as a car. When buying a car, the price will depend on the make, model, year, mileage, and trim package. When buying floating stairs, you’ll look at other details: your project’s floor-to-floor height, the number of turns your staircase will take, the type of wood species and stain color for your treads, and what type of railing you want all will influence the pricing.

What is a Metal Stair Stringer?

The term “stringer” refers to the spine of a staircase. As the backbone of your stairs, the stringer is a critical element of any well-constructed staircase. A newer invention, the metal stair stringer has quickly become a renovation in stair design, appealing to contractors and DIY homeowners alike.

Traditionally, stringers were made from construction lumber and would be installed in threes: one stringer on each side of the stairway, and one in the center for support. Wide stairways required a few extra stringers for structural support. In these conventional stairways, the stringer was actually built inside the walls, hidden in drywall or paneling, where it became part of the structural membrane of the house.
